Large Scale Solar System

When a Science Institution asked for a large scale solar system model to be used in their on-site television studio, FX Models was able to create it quickly and employ its own astronomer/president to paint the planets accurately!  Each planet was an acrylic sphere with mounting brackets in the top for hanging within the studio. Saturn's Rings were a single sheet of circular cut acrylic sheet attached to the main planet via stand-offs. 

 

Solar System Model  created for Science Research Center. 

Astronomers, note Cassini's division in the rings and the visible sub-rings.

Another view of the Solar System model in context. For those astronomers out there, 

note the white turbulent storms on Neptune and below the Great Red Spot on Jupiter. 

This image is shot low, along the plane of Saturn's rings in the foreground.
